Peter Singer: It’s Okay to Euthanize Babies or Mentally Disabled People

( – Dylan Matthews is a senior correspondent and head writer for Vox’s Future Perfect section and has worked at Vox since 2014.

Vox published an interview by Matthews on May 30, 2023 with philosopher Peter Singer who is known as a father of the animal rights movement. Singer is possibly the most influencial philosopher of our day and, among other things, supports euthanasia and infanticide. Matthews states that the philosophy aspoused by Peter Singer has greatly affected him.

I believe that people are too polite about Singer’s philosophy. Singer has a eugenic philosophy and his writings are dangerous.

Singer justifies that certain lives are unworthy of life and his philosophy undermines the concept of human equality by justifying the killing of people who lack an undefined level of cognitive capacity. CONTINUE
